Me, a humble fic farmer, tending her plot of land:
neighbor john said there was a shipwar starting just over the hills. what do you think Ma, do you think we'll ever see a shipwar?
Ma, clutching her apron to her chest:
oh dear, I hope not!
Pa, sitting in his rocking chair and smoking his pipe:
hmph! there's always been shipwars and there will always be shipwars. you just keep your nose out of it and mind your own business. we ain't got no business messing around in shipwars. now step to it! i want that field of headcanons and plot twists plowed by morning! and keep those plot bunnies from getting at the smut, we can't afford anymore WIPs!
LISTEN. You are a good witch. You are a strong witch. You are a powerful and capable witch. You write amazing spells. That herb satchel you made that you're questioning? I can feel it from here. Good fucking job, you badass. Your readings are spot-thefuck-on too. Your original rituals make mountains fucking tremble. Your sigils are beautiful as FUCK. The Gods and Goddesses are so FUCKING proud of you. That butter knife you use as your athame because you can't afford a 'real' one can still fuck up the ethereal realm and don't yOU FUCKING FORGET IT. Your craft is AMAZING. Your path is fucking VALID AND JUST AS STUNNING AS YOU ARE. YOU. ARE. WITCHY. ROYALTY. OKAY?! NOW GET OUT THERE CONJURE SOME SHIT.
I understand that it sucks when you can’t afford to pay for things you love. It really, really does! And it’s kind of a shitty move when something that was once free moves behind a pay wall.
But at the same time, artists deserve to be paid. That goes for the people you love to watch, who create the things you love to consume, as well as the artists you know in fandom. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with artists saying “here’s a venue that’s willing to help us financially to do some of the things we love, so let’s create new stuff exclusively for that venue.” It sucks that the audience for those things is limited by people who can pay for them, but … until someone smashes capitalism for good and makes it so that none of us have rent or utilities or food expenses, that’s the way some things are going to be.
Artists deserve to be paid. Art costs money, in many many ways, especially when you’re making it for a larger audience. It sucks if you don’t have the money to pay for art you love, but the answer to that is not to bitch at the people making the art. They don’t owe you free art or free entertainment. No one does.
Hi guys, I’m sorry I think I need to reduce making requests for a small while and the reason is that I really need to eat and buy my meds, so I’m doing commissions! Anything is appreciated! Every piece is fully coloured and any fandom is fine! You can send me an email to pakastinprinssi[at]gmail.com
I checked my grades and saw that my English grade went from an A to a B— Idk why, I spent two days– a total of 12 hours working on my annotated bibliography for my research paper– What did I do wrong. I swear it’s because I pointed out how my professor couldn’t spell when we were in class, not only that but I got into an argument with him last class for being biased about my topic rather than giving me legit critique about my thesis, so I called him out on it.
